Genealogy Classes

Our beginner’s class will teach you how to use Ancestry.com for free at the library and how search your family history through our free database, Heritage Quest, from the comfort of your own home. The class can even help you find where your deceased family member’s burial sites are located. Space is limited so call or stop by the department to see when the next set of classes will be held.

Ali the Alligator

It's easy to get Ali to your school or event. Simply call 985-748-7559 X210 and schedule an appearance. Our actors can only be inside the costume for 30 minutes at a time before a cooling off period of 15 minutes, then another block of 30 minutes. Please have a staging area for cooling off away from children to maintain the magic of Ali.
